Passoni Top Force - Shimano Dura Ace mechanical

Carl is a long time cyclist and IT meister and he loves his numbers and statistics, he can recall his best times on many an Alpine climb and Yorkshire Col at the drop of a hat. You have to get everything right for Carl, but surprisingly no powermeter.

The challenge with this build was to design a bike that not only fitted well but would also need to incorporate a new riding position, this can be risky as feeling not quite right on a brand new bike can be a bit of a drama after a five figure investment. We found the right place for Carl and he loves his Passoni, even the narrower handlebars, we're not so sure about that carbon saddle though!

What our clients say

  • "I had my second fitness test this weekend and on the first 8 minute time trial I'd improved average power output by a whopping 41 watts over the previous test. This is almost entirely down to the new position!"

    Alan B
  • "Thanks very much for consultation last week - since I saw you I do not have anything like the same amount of pain I was experiencing previously. I am so much more at ease with my new positioning and my posture feels right now."

    Jane B
  • "Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position. Felt more connected and compact on the bike. Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."

  • "Hey Julian and Phil, I hope you are both well. I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great! Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before. All the best, Hannah"

  • "I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
